About this tour

Travel from Fethiye to the “Cotton Palace” of Pamukkale and the ancient city of Hierapolis, on a full-day guided tour. Visit the Apollo temple, the Roman baths, the agora, and other sites. Enjoy lunch and a swim in the soothing thermal waters.

Pamukkale, also known as the “Cotton Castle,” is a glistening white marvel created by limestone-laden hot springs, giving rise to stalactites, pot-holes, and enchanting fairy tables. The water is renowned for its alleged benefits to the eyes and skin, offering relief for ailments such as asthma, rheumatism, and dermatitis. Paddling through the warm water provides an exhilarating experience, allowing glimpses of ancient column fragments beneath the water’s surface. While the baths are enjoyable, don’t forget to explore the ancient Hierapolis with its Theater, Necropolis, Roman Baths, and Agora.

Situated 19 km north of Denizli, Pamukkale is Turkey’s premier mineral-bath spa, celebrated for its natural beauty. Hot calcium-laden waters emerge from the earth, cascading over a cliff to form dramatic travertines of hard, brilliantly white calcium that create pools.

Your full-day excursion commences early in the morning with a pickup from your Fethiye hotel. After a lunch break, you’ll explore the snow-white terraced cliffs of Pamukkale, often referred to as the Cotton Palace. The calcite-laden waters originate from springs on a 200-meter-high cliff, creating mineral forests, petrified waterfalls, and terraced basins.

Visit historical sites such as the Roman theater, Apollo temple, Roman baths, fountains, and the agora. Following the tour, take the opportunity to swim in thermal pools. An optional extra is a swim in Cleopatra’s Pool, available for an additional fee.

Hierapolis Ancient City
The extensive ruins of the Roman mineral water spa city, Hierapolis, feature a grand theater, a vast necropolis, colonnaded streets, baths, and numerous other structures. The Sacred Pool in Pamukkale remains from Roman times, serving as the spiritual center of the spa city. The day concludes around 8 pm.
